For me it's sort of like the intellectual version of aromatherapy. LOL.

Because it gives my confidence a boost and i LOVE knowing that women/men like the way i smell
It starts out cultural. It's abnormal not to wear perfume.
Secondly because perfumes, if synced to your mood and style, can enhance any situation.
First and foremost, because I enjoy it. I like the smell and I find scents alluring on others.
As well, it accompanies me during my day. It gives me company
I have also always been interested by fragrance ads and counters ( when I was a young boy, especially).
Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Nicole Miller (vintage), Opium pour Homme, Oxford & Cambridge, Fahrenheit Absolute, Concentré D'Orange Verte...etc.
Seeking decant/sample of Jil Sander Feeling Man, Bijan for Men EDC, Lanvin for Men, Giorgio VIP, Il Lancetti and other old school frags ....etc. I have samples to swap.
Please PM me !
My natural scent is irresistibly masculine. Wearing perfume just gives other guys a chance.
So I don't smell like a medieval swineherd.
But mostly for my personal enjoyment.
Because it smells good.
Because dignity matters.
A perfume is not necessary for living but it works well for seducing women especially if the perfume contains quality musk and that is of course is a fairy tale but for me perfume sets the mood for the rest of the day like a good cup of coffee in the morning.
Currently listening to: Counting Crows - Mr. Jones, The Last Waltz - Old Boy, The Prodigy - Firestarter, Gorillaz - Clint Eastwood, R.E.M - Losing My Religion, "He's On the Beach" - Kirsty MacColl, In-Grid - Tu Es Foutu
because I know I'm too lazy to look good, smelling good is easier.
Just kidding, I simply enjoy it, but maybe it's a little cultural since I'm middle eastern, and I just took it a step further by being a collector.
Because it makes me feel good. It's the only reason.
Smells good, relaxing...
I switch fragrances depending on mood
It's part of the overall dandy thing that I do, in a restrained way. Also, the aromatherapy that Bigsly brought up. I like that too. Once I discovered Gendarme I realized that fragrance is a whole world unto itself, and I wanted to know more about it. Besides, one always needs multiple hobbies if one hates to travel.
enables one to express their mood, or even has the capability to change my mood!
and I really like what Surfacing mentioned, about keeping one company
To pick up chicks obviously.
Changes/improves my mood, as well as I like to hear good comments, from those around me, about how I smell
Because the right fragrance on the right day makes me smile.
Because I like smelling and smelling of fine fragrance.
LOST! in scent and music
I'm a dropped panty collector. And for my own enjoyment.
Because it makes my days more enjoyable.
Smelling something that I find pleasant all day is nice. Knowing that the smell is me makes it even better.
Joseph Campbell once said 'our job is to live joyously in this world of sorrows'. Wearing fragrance helps aim me in that direction.
There are three kinds of people in this world: those who understand math and those who don't (four out of three people surveyed agree with this).
If of thy mortal goods thou art bereft,
And from thy slender store two loaves alone to thee are left,
Sell one, and with the dole
Buy hyacinths to feed thy soul.
- Moslih Eddin Saadi,
Gulistan (Garden of Roses)
It feeds my soul. Makes me smile when I get a whiff during the day. Sometimes reminds me of other times. Sometimes it's comforting. Sorta like wearing sexy lingerie that no one else will see. It just makes me feel feminine and special.
Pleasure, curiosity, fashion addiction, intellectual stimulation, mood, relaxation, need for diversity and the list may go on (nearly) without ending
I love smelling good!
....and I don't want to walk naked outside
To quote our own JaimeB, "I just want to smell nice."
"No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this." Desert Rose by Sting and Cheb Mami, Album 1999.
It's like taking a good friend along wherever you go.
A fragrance that smells good to me and on me pulls my outfit together better if I am dressing to impress, or just makes the day better all around if I'm my own audience. In a way, maybe there is a bit of public aromatherapy going on, too.
Fragrances don't hurl things at me when I feel compelled to start meeting other fragrances.
